Remember to make sure you always spend the money, and get the higher amp alternator. if you get one that doesn't put out enough, then it will act like its going bad also.

Where is the radiator cap on 2003 Ford Focus ZTW

I do not believe that there is a radiator cap on the Focus. I believe that the coolant is filled from the what most would consider the overflow tank. It is an overflow tank of sorts but serves also to fill the radiator.
